The Kings of Leon family has just gotten bigger.

Drummer Nathan Followill and his wife, singer-songwriter Jessie Baylin, welcomed a baby girl on Wednesday.

It's the first baby for the couple and the third for the Followill family band. Nathan Followill's brother Caleb and cousin Matthew also have children.

A spokesman says Violet Marlowe Followill was born at 4:01 p.m. in Nashville. She was 7 pounds, 13 ounces at birth.

Followill  and Baylin - who met at a music festival in 2006 - tied the knot in November 2009 in an intimate Tennessee ceremony. They invited just close family and friends, including Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson.

The baby comes before what promises to be a busy 2013 for Kings of Leon. The Nashville, Tennessee-based band has been working on new music for an album that's expected to be released next year. Baylin released her third album, Little Spark, earlier this year.

The couple has been married since 2009.
